Justin Andrews, the former vice president of Lou Rodriguez Cigars, has found a new home at General Cigar Co., joining the company in what he described as a “creative marketing position” in a Facebook post earlier this week, adding that he will be working alongside Michael Giannini of Foundry Tobacco Company, something he called “a dream come true.”
Andrews told halfwheel that he wasn’t at liberty to discuss further details about what his new position entails, saying that he had to wait for Giannini to give him the green light to discuss further details about his new role. Andrews did say that he had been in Wisconsin doing events on behalf of the company.
An email sent to Giannini seeking comment has not been returned.
Prior to joining General Cigar Co., Andrews spent five years with Lou Rodriguez Cigars, departing the company in August 2014. In addition to his role as vice president, Andrews also assisted in blending a pair of the company’s cigars, including the Lou Rod and Double Nickel.
